YEN at W Taipei serves creative and high quality “New Chinese Cuisine”, even if visiting alone can still try their dishes. Heard that their portion of set meals are small, but I’ve tried and I was full after lunch.
I visited alone for lunch, tried their 1180NT business lunch. Love their purple tone main theme, especially their purple chopsticks.
Sweet and sour dried roselle as appetizer.
寶島野菌餃 、潮州蒸粉粿 、魚籽蒸燒賣
Formosa mushroom dumpling, Steamed dumpling with peanuts, dried daikon radish and pork Steamed fish roe siew mai
Delicate dim sum. Formosa mushroom dumpling is the most special one, rarely find wild mushroom dumplings in HK.
Yen’s soup of the day
Chayote soup with chicken feet and pork bone, homey and tasty Chinese soup.
Seared tiger prawns, soy bean paste
A flavorful savory main dish, fresh prawns taste nice with soybean paste.
Poached seasonal greens with wolfberries in supreme chicken broth
After a flavorful prawns, I have this rich chicken broth and wolfberries with Chinese spinach. It looks small in portion but actually it’s quite a lot.
Sweetened pumpkin soup with sago, coconut cream and sorbet Creamy egg tart
Light dessert with natural sweetness from pumpkin. I like the egg tart crust, fluffy and buttery.
Fresh fruit platter
The portion of this lunch is just right, enough for me and didn’t feel too full afterwards. Will come again and try more dim sum with friends.
